This British sitcom can be accurately described as Tripper's Day without Tripper. With the departure of star Leonard Rossiter (aka Norman Tripper), supporting actor Bruce Forsyth was promoted to the leading role. Simultaneously, Forsyth's character, Cecil Slinger, was promoted to manager of the Supafare Supermarket formerly helmed by the estimable Mr. Tripper. This "new" series lasted 12 half-hour episodes over a two-year period (September 3, 1986 to October 14, 1987), during which time Tripper's staff experienced quite a turnover, with virtually the entire cast replaced for the series' second season. Like its predecessor, Slinger's Day was the brainchild of Brian Cooke.
